The entire Israelite community entered the Wilderness of Zin in the first month, and theya settled in Kadesh. Miriamb died and was buried there.
There was no water for the community, so they assembled against Moses and Aaron.
The people quarreled with Moses and said, "If only we had perished when our brothers perished before the Lord.c4
Why have you brought the Lord's assembly into this wilderness for us and our livestock to die here?
Why have you led us up from Egypt to bring us to this evil place? It's not a place of grain, figs, vines, and pomegranates,d and there is no water to drink!"
Then Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly to the doorway of the tent of meeting. They fell down with their faces [to the ground], and the glory of the Lord appeared to them.
